St. George Classes

Excellence And Understanding

Educate Enlighten Edify

The transformative learning process at Ascent Advantage Academy is designed to help our students grow in faith, in character, in understanding, and in knowledge. We personalize our curriculum to your child’s needs.

 

Our program is based on eternal principles found in the Scriptures, on modern research as to how the brain works, on the wisdom of Prophets and Founders, and on our own experience.

 

Our tutors work with our students individually, as well as in classes, to assure understanding and subject mastery.

EXPERIENCE COMBINED WITH AN INNOVATIVE AND PROVEN PROGRAM

A LOVING ACCEPTING ATMOSPHERE WHERE KIDS CAN RELAX AND EXCEL

TEACHING AND LEARNING BY THE SPIRIT

We emphasize the teaching of correct principles.
We start each day with a song and a prayer which invites the Spirit.
Students are taught that Heavenly Father is interested in their studies.
We encourage children to pray for His help with their studies.
Tutors endeavor to teach by the Spririt.

SHORTER Class Times MEAn BETTER LEARNING

Experience Proves It

○ We learned through our studies that students retain only the first and last 10-12 minutes of a class period. Also, recent research has shown that the brain learns in 20 minute increments! Thus, we shortened the class times to 30 minutes.

○ Proven Program: We tested this model in 2005-2008. To our surprise, the short day students out-performed our full day students.

○ Today: We offer only the 25 minute classes.

○ We begin with a Devotional and Brain Tune-up Exercises.

○ We then tutor six or eight subjects.

○ The day closes with a brief clean-up time, a homework check, a song, and a prayer.

○ Homework is an integral part of the program, but is usually accomplished during class study periods.
